got bamboozled. not in the sense of being emotional, and in a sense of the law. i was a diplomat five years prior to the current president now, who is a friend of mine with a diplomatic passport, and my title was ambassador at large, so the residency laws do not really apply, because how would you give me a five-year passports if i am not a haitian citizen? the same goes for my uncle who also ran and was also bamboozled, so i want you to understand the reason i did not fight if any further is because looking at the history of my country and them already labeling me a populist before i got started, i would never have youth rise of from bloodshed just to get our. when we need now is educational revolution. tavis: this book is brutally honest about a number of things. i want to go through your attempt to be brutally honest, so we were talking about youth rising up and bloodshed. you talk about how you went looking for somebody after the and you are glad you did not find him, because you might have done something you had no business doing. i will let you tell the story. >> being with my w

number of people with the least amount of effort common-law -- now the least amount of effort, because we have forgotten to be people. we know how to be doctors and lawyers and nurses, but how do i just sit with you in your vulnerability and not betray you or abuse you? we do not know how to do that even in our own homes, so that is my vision for the show that will help you live by principal and out run the vehicle -- out run the ego. tavis: in your book you talk about the first time you have a show. white folk can fail their way to the top. you had a daytime show, but now you get a second shot. how are you approaching this differently from the first time you add your own show? >> this is my ministry. i am very clear about that. i have a new vision, and that is in line with the old vision to produce and gives people a better life. before i was not aligned with people who were aligned with minor position. we are older now. i do not want to say older. i am better now. >> my grandmother likes to say i am chronologically gifted. >> i am not seeking any thing but service to my creator. i do no
is a pri, congress passed a law that provided anybody. as a result, we got into the crisis, we had hundreds of trillions of derivatives that were based on these mortgages. how the derivatives performed would be based on how mortgages were performing. and nobody had good information about this market. those are key mistakes rubbermaid leading up to the crisis. -- does for key mistakes that were made leading up to the crisis. the regulators should have stood up to it. the pressure was relentless from the industry. and you still see it now as they tried to implement dodd-frank. tavis: you were a regulator. how much of this crisis had to do with regulators who just got rolled? >> a lot of it did. i have some anecdotes. you cannot win with the industry. not all banks -- there were some banks that are not part of the problem. there are some banks trying to help the reform process. a lot of industry lobbyists to weight -- who were in an irresponsible part of the crisis the fdic was pushing very hard to tighten lending standards for subprime loans for the banks that the insured. we've been getting
you that the veto is part of the united nations chapter, it's part of the international law embodied in its most important instrument. and the veto right for the members of the security council was the proposal of the united states of america, in san francisco conference. and the americans refused to create a united nations organizations without this provision. so veto is part of international law. the founding fathers of the united nations -- >> rose: i understand, i understand. >> -- agreed that unless the five government members see eye to eye, the decisions would not be workable. >> rose: i agree with that. but i mean, i am also asking, do you ever consider the fact that in this case you are very much on the wrong side of history. >> well you can only judge when history evolves. and we're no watching history in the making. when my good friend colin powell. >> rose: colin powell. >> was shaking this vial with some white powder in the security council, the americans were telling us, unless we authorize the use of force against iraq, we would be on the wrong part of history. and
? >> there are a couple states-- notably florida and ohio-- that have enacted laws now. in ohio we have uncertainty because we don't know the outcome of an appeal to a lower court decision which overturned that law in ohio. if florida we have more clarity because a federal court has now cleared the pathway for a restriction of early voting the weekend prior to election. and the best statistics that we have on this is at least in 2008 that was a time when african americans predominantly voted. so you might think that there might be some potential challenge, then, to the obama campaign and certainly there is one. but i also feel that the obama campaign has the resources to meet that challenge. so i expect the obama campaign to encourage their supporters to vote by mail, vote at the other times of early voting that are offered instead of that one weekend and so who knows? who knows what the eventual effect of early voting will be, that restriction in florida. >> ifill: michael mcdonald of george mason, university, thank you so much. >> thank you. >> woodruff: and we return to the war in syria-- one of
new laws they say will fix the economy, the people shrugged. no one really believes that will work, because spaniards aren't working-- that's the problem-- unemployment is rampant now over 25%. whilst the property crash that started the crisis is still festering. further austerity measures will simply suck more money out of the economy and threaten an even deeper recession. spain is trying to save a total of 40 billion from its budget which will hurt. it won't be as excruciately painful as a new round of cuts in greece. they are trying to save an extra 12 billion from a budget that has already been pared to the bone. no one is spared the pain greece not even the most vulnerable. disabled protestors took to the streets today pleading for their benefits not to be cut further. they can no longer even afford the medicine they need they say. >> sreenivasan: the greek government today came to basic agreement on $15 billion worth of cuts in spending over the next two years. the country needs to make the cuts if it wants to keep receiving bailout loans from the e.u. and international monet
? >> well, actually, they carried it to themselves. because as you know, tom, the laws that exist now is if there needs to be a winddown of a large financial institution, that's going to be paid for in part by an assessment on the industry itself. so if we have to winddown a large financial institution in the future, it's akin to, not exactly an orderly bankruptcy process, but it's akin to that. and to the extent there needs to be some last settle up there, it is an assessment based on the industry's payments into a fund fund. and so that concern and vision that i expressed and maybe that inart willful way to say it has actually come to be true. >> tom: the former governor of minnesota, tim pawlenty, the incoming c.e.o. of the financial services round table. >> tom: autumn officially is only a few days old, but u.s. farmers already have harvested almost half of this year's corn crop. the drought scotched hopes for a bumper crop this year, but some farmers in parts of illinois and iowa say the harvest isn't as bad a feared. diane eastabrook has details. >> reporter: as the blades of a
behavior in the law that i broke. i will pay off the pity and hurt that i caused throughout the rest of my life to the people and the party that care about me. for now i can only sincerely say that i'm sorry, i'm truly sorry i let you down. >> sreenivasan: the wang case led to the downfall of his former boss bo xilai, a once- powerful communist party leader. he is still under investigation. bo's wife, gu kailai, was given a suspended death sentence last month for the murder of the british businessman. the taiwanese company that makes apple's iphones halted production today at a chinese factory after a brawl overnight. it involved up to 2,000 employees at the foxconn plant in taiyuan. some of them said it started after a security guard roughed up a worker. in the past year, foxconn has come under scrutiny for alleged labor abuses. the company said production at the plant would resume tomorrow. it employs more than a million workers worldwide. two u.s. marines will be court- martialed on charges they urinated on the bodies of taliban fighters in afghanistan last year. images of the incident
: joyce hirsch has a ph.d. from cornell and a law degree and ten years' experience as a biotech patent attorney. but credentials don't seem to impress the software. >> i do a lot of networking. i need a lot of other professionals in relad fields accounting, finance, regulatory, all kinds of things. there are a huge number of really amazing people out there who are in a similar situation. they can't get past the on-line software. they just can't seem to get an interview. >> reporter: so what's going on? are these frustrated job applicants overqualified, underexperienced? is it their age, their gender, their race? none of the above, says wharton professor peter kapeli. >> from this point on, the companies decides, you know what we can't have people coming in off the street to do these jobs. >> reporter: he thinks the problem is that firms, big and small, have eliminated human beings from the hiring process. >> they're trying to do things cheaply and efficiently but most of them, i think, don't have the historical memory to even know that they didn't used to do things this way. >> reporte
as a humanitarian disaster in syria. and it is clearly a violation of international law. but i think seen from a strategic point of view both russia and china should have a self-interest in being so to speak on the right side of history. and i think that could be an argument for them in favor of delivering a clear and unified and strong message from the international community. >> rose: do you think it's a stalemate today? >> more or less it is a stalemate. with severe consequences for the people of syria. and i think the international community has a responsibility to deliver a very clear message to the assad regime that they must stop violence and initiate a process towards democracy in syria. no regime can in the long-term neglect the will of the people. >> rose: when you look at the balkans, we had an intervention without a u.n. resolution. nato acted without a u.n. resolution. can you imagine that happening in syria? >> testimony brief answer is no, but let me stress that nato acted on the basic of the principles of the u.n. charter when we took responsibility for the operation in kosovo.
in their own right, kind of a little law unto themselves, god-like in their powers, to a team of physicians managing the complex knowledge necessary to deliver best care to a patient. [crying] james: we have a massive drop in unplanned c-section rates. it was associated with about $50 million per year in savings to the people of utah. oh, by the way, we were punished financially. we make more money when we do an unplanned c-section. we get basically screwed by the payment system, but patients come first. here's your boy. oh. there you go. james: turns out that our criteria for appropriate elective induction, if you violate the criteria, more children end up in the newborn icu. [monitor beeping] i had a c-section and basically, i had 2 7--babies that were over 7 1/2 pounds apiece, so they were pretty big babies. i kind of chose to do the c-section. people come from literally all over the world for complicated deliveries, and that by definition drives up our c-section rate because of the complications. but i would still say that i think our c-section rate can be improved. we left our newborn
